  • Metals and Ceramics

    Art Adventures YA! (Young Adult) Day Camp hosts students in grades 6-8 to OCAC’s professional arts studios under the guidance of working artists and arts educators. The Spring Break Camp session is comprised of two in-depth art workshops. This intensive exploration of two different studio techniques provides the developing teen boundless opportunity for self-expression and personal exploration. The needs of middle school students are unique and we thrive on finding a creative balance with this age group. The YA! Day Camp is an ideal starting point for any youth interested in pursuing art at a more complex and rigorous level or just interested in exploring a creative idea.

    At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 4:00pm for our Friday Art Walk. This is a chance to share their artwork with families, friends, camp staff and other artists. The art show gives campers a chance to celebrate the week’s accomplishments and to see their work through the eyes of others.

Before/After Care is offered as a package for an additional fee of $30 per session. No person under the age of 15 years may wait unsupervised on the campus of Oregon College of Art and Craft.

    YA! Metals & Ceramics
    Our metals workshop is a wonderful and rare chance for middle school students to explore an ancient medium and the techniques to create small-scale projects such as jewelry, sculpture, functional items and decorative metal pieces. Each Metals Instructor focuses on different techniques to produce wonderful projects. Examples of projects might include wire sculpture and explore how to use line three-dimensionally, cutting flat sheets to create forms that move, surface design and stamping to create literary metal pieces or wearable art, and small scale forming and bending of metal to create jewelry. Every metals class is unique, and offers different skills for campers to explore in the wide field of metals.

    Ceramics is a very hands-on workshop! We have two different processes that campers focus on in the ceramics class. The first process is learning to work on the wheel in the ceramics studio. Students learn to center the clay and form and build throughout the week. This means campers come away with thrown objects that can be used functionally, or as art pieces. The second process is hand building. Campers make sculptural objects when hand-building- exploring the limitless possibilities of forming clay. All projects are fired and either glazed or painted, so they come away with wonderfully finished pieces.

  • Art Adventures BEGINNINGS Camp - Ages 4-6

    Our exciting BEGINNINGS Camp is designed specifically for our youngest artists, ages 4-6 years, to guide our campers through an exploration of visual art, play, and song as a first step towards interdisciplinary creation. Our camp links creative problem solving with exploratory learning, all directly tied to children’s imagination and a desire to create.

    Each week we build a new small camp community, valuing our unique young artists and their personalities. We encourage self-expression, respect, creative exploration, and play.

    Beginnings Camp is Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. This full-day schedule for the week includes a creatively rich curriculum of art making, open and structured projects that build throughout the week, environmental projects and discovery, free play, and quiet “reading” time. We emphasize exploration with mediums such as drawing, painting, sculpture, sewing, and mixed media. If your camper is not quite ready for that long of a day, you are welcome to come pick your camper up early. We do offer a quiet time in the afternoon, where campers listen to music, read or listen to stories while on their quiet time mat for 30 min. By the end of the week, many campers have a little nap during this quiet time, as these are busy camp days!

    At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 3:30pm for our Friday Art Walk, where campers can show off their work and the creative camp studio and parents can meet the teaching artists.

    Additional supervised care is available from 8am-9am (Before Care) and from 5pm-6pm (After Care). Before/After Care is offered as a package for an additional fee of $30 per session.

    Each week of Beginnings Camp will have a unique and exciting focus, so repeat campers are welcome!

    We hope to see you at Beginnings Camp!
